G.O.O.D. Music crew at Jay-Z's Made in America FestivalThe Dome’s budding music critic and established cynic Chris Milazzo runs down some songs that should make the Stadium PA’s playlist this week. According to Chris, this may or may not be a weekly thing.

Some language, NSFW.


1. To the World by Kanye West ft. R. Kelly

Ye and the G.O.O.D. music crew released their first album this week, Cruel Summer, and much like West’s last collaborative effort, Watch the Throne, Summer is more about style than substance. And while you may deride his music for the more-than-occasional instance of musical vacuity, you can’t knock West’s eye for ear candy; he’s a trend setter. Like ThroneSummer’s production is lush and infectious. You’ll hate that you like these songs, but they’re undeniably catchy. The album’s first track, To the World, is just one example.


2. Tryouts theme, Rudy Soundtrack 

While I enjoy the greatest of all university fight songs as much as the next Domer, I always wondered what it would be like if we set the entire game to the Rudy Soundtrack. Nothing is quite as inspiring as reminding yourself that your “five-feet nothing, 100-and-nothing…”

3. This.

If this world-wide sensation of a song isn’t played at the opening kickoff, I predict post-game rioting on Debart Quad.

4. But not this…

For those of you who have ever been to Michigan Stadium, Seven Nation Army is played just about every down. I can imagine an intense moment of awkwardness, as Michigan and Notre Dame fans chant “dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-daah-daahhh” together, only to realize they’re singing with the enemy.

Fourth down…

5. Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne



6. Either this … or this.
